I went to a Merchants tire and auto store and priced a Knock Sensor. I knew it was a knock sensor because i went to Midas before hand and got a engine diagnostic from them so i didn't need another diagnosis.

The extimaes i got was for a Knock sensor and installation and NOT a 105 dollar engine diagnosis because i didn't need one.  (All of this was done to get the best price comparison shopping and merchants gave me the best price)

When they started and without my knowledge they did a engine diagnosis which i asked them not to do since i already had one done by a professional business. THEY DID ONE ANYWAY and charged me the 105 dollars plus all the other estimated prices.

The store told me if i When i called to coMPLAIN I HAD TO CALL THE 8779083718 NUMBER but WHEN I DID NO ONE CALLED ME BACK.

I'm still trying to get my 105.00 dollars back...................

With all the other repair shops out there i would think Merchant might be nice to customers as there's better shops out there.

If paid by....

AUTHOR: Righteous1 - (USA)

If paid by credit card , dispute with the company as a charge you did not agree to at time of service.
Unclear why you even paid at ALL if you clearly did not sign to have the diagnostics done. I would have only paid for the service "I" agreed to originally. They make 95% profit off there so called Computer generated testing anyways. The Machine cost then around 500 to 1 k and they already made hand over foot the first few suckers ( errm ummm I mean valuable and precious consumers) who did pay for that device....

If they would have put up a fuss....I would have found away to get it taken off the billing. They should be more worried about their reputation then a  few bucks....

Call or stop in to speak with their manager and see if they can't bring you back to a level of satisfaction. You do deserve to be treated and have your terms met. Good luck and thank you for sharing this to bring awareness from your experience.
